    eeeey fan's, you probably sometime asked yourself the question while watching star wars: what if this happened?

    Me to... reply on someones question and the make your own.

    How could obi-wan and qui-gon ever reach Naboo alife while in a Trade Federation landing craft filled with battle droids?

    The battle droids were deactivated in carrier transit, and they went in quietly.

    What if Queen Amidala and some Naboo well-to-do's decided to go back to Tatooine to buy the freedom of the mother of their hero of the day Anakin?

    Anakin didn't have to rescue her in Ep2, and didn't have to smoke the tuskenraiders so he wouldn't go to the dark side ...yet

    Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon then have to hoof it to the city and are too late to stop the Viceroy from forcing the queen to sign the treaty thus legalizing the invasion. This started a downward spiral of corporations doing hostile takeovers of whole worlds. The Dark Lord of the Sith rises a decade early.

    My turn! What would have happened if Qui-Gon had not bartered for Anakins freedom thus forcing him to grow up in slavery?

    I think that, when he wouldn't be discovered, he would -soon or later- be exported to some sort of mining colony, or solt. I don't think he would be able to go free, because he would never have discovered the force inside him.


    My turn again :)

    How did anakin ever got enough money time and parts to build C3PO?

    He slowed down time and teleported the parts to Tatooine. He unfortunately has no knowledge of how to do the opposite.

    What if the hyperdrive on the Queen's ship hadn't been damaged in the escape from Naboo and they went straight to Coruscant?

    Anakin doesn't meet Padme. Anakin doesn't win the Boonta Eve Race and stays a slave.

    What Lucas had never created Jar Jar?

    A lot of overgrown manchildren would breathe a sigh of relief while the true children of the world are denied laughter.

    My turn! What if Jar Jar had been pune-ished?

    Obi-Wan would have enjoyed it, cementing him as the "eyes of the audience" in the PT even further.

    What if Obi-Wan were allergic to sand?

    He would have stayed inside the Royal Starship.

    What if Obi-Wan were allergic to lasers?
  12. Chancellor_Ewok Force Ghost

    Then it would explain why he doesn't like flying.

    What if Obi-wan approved of Jar Jar?

    Jar Jar probably would have stayed behind with Obi-Wan then changing the outcome of the movie not at all. ;)

    What is Qui-Gon had stepped in the poodu instead of Jar Jar?

    I think he would slip and end up with his head in the poo. :eek:

    What if Boss Nass didn't want to support Amidala in her plans for recapturing Naboo?

  15. Chancellor_Ewok Force Ghost

    Then the Jedi would step in and probably mind trick Boss Nass into helping the Queen.

    What if there wasn't a bigger fish?

    Then Qui-gon would've ejected Jar-jar into the water as a distraction (or fish food, either way Jar-jar better swim fast).

    What if Padme and Panaka's grappling hook lines had broken on their assult in Theed's palace?

    EDIT 2x: spelling

    Padme would've fallen to her death, thus helping to prevent Anakin's fall, and also preventing the birth of he who would save the now not-fallen Jedi.


    What if Anakin had turned around to look for whatever it was he'd dropped when Qui-Gon yelled for him to drop?

    Then he would have been run over by Darth Maul.

    What if Anakin hadn't been able to restart his Pod after it stalled?

    Then Anakin would have remained a slave, Watto would have won a lot of money and had Anakins pod and Qui-Gon and company would be stranded on Tatooine until Maul finds a picks them off.

    What if Watto had blown Shmi up out of anger at Qui-Gon for freeing Anakin?

    Then Ep.II would have had a scene where Anakin kills Watto.

    What if the Council had decided that someone else should train Anakin?

    Then Obi-Wan and Anakin wouldn't be best friends.

    What if Padme confessed her love to Anakin in EP1?

    then anakin would have had kids very early

    what if the naboo cruiser hyperdrive didn't leak

    Anikan Stays a Slave and The empire is never made.

    What if Qui-Gon Didn't die?

    Anakin would be trained successfuly to Jedi Knighthood in record time and he would go through with his duty and bring balance to the Force and the Empire would never rise. IMO

    What if Palpatine had killed Anakin after the battle of Naboo?

    Um... Why would he?

    What would've happened if the council said anikan would not be trained?
